And it looked so promising yesterday morning. The snow was falling in large clumps and gathering in billowy mounds on the ground, roofs, and tree branches. But as the day went on the snow turned to rain and everything got murky again. It looks like this will be the 4th year in a row that we are going to be stuck with a gray Christmas. Once more I won't be able to take pictures of the beautiful lights that people have put up and the world will stay in black and white.
